The Florida Bar has issued a call for nominations for the annual pro bono service awards, which honor lawyers, judges, law firms and associations that have contributed extraordinary pro bono service. The deadline for most nominations is October 8.

Pro bono publico means “for the public good,” and pro bono legal service is just one way that attorneys do their part to help make their communities better.

In 2019-20, the last year reported, Florida Bar members collectively contributed more than $6,369,000 to legal aid organizations and donated 1.3 million hours of free legal service.
